In between tours, visit a family-run winery on the slopes of Vesuvius for a pre-set lunch and wine tasting (at your own expense).

    I study archaeology and I have been a guide in Pompeii for 27 years: I still cannot believe how advanced Romans were! You will be surprised by the size and at the amazing state of preservation of the archaeological site.

    We will visit the Forum, ancient public baths, private houses, taverns, shops, theatres, and more. We will admire fabulously preserved frescos and mosaics that adorn the walls and floors of the ancient houses.
    We will walk at your own pace and I will make sure that everyone in your group understands what he is looking at. We will stay away from crowds as much as possible. The itinerary is flexible and I shall adapt to your will and needs.

    Stop At: Parco Acheologico di Ercolano, Corso Resina, 187, 80056 Ercolano Italy

    The Ancient Roman city of Herculaneum was buried by Mount Vesuvius 2000 years ago and it came back to light during the last century. We will admire stunning views of the Volcano and of the Bay of Naples. We will learn what happened during that terrific eruption. We will visit ancient houses, Bath-Houses, little shops, taverns. We will enter the daily life of the average Roman. We will admire incredible frescoes and mosaics. We will be awe-stricken by the dreadful skeletons!
    We will walk approximately two hours to discover the archaeological park and the little museum. Herculaneum is more compact than Pompeii, better preserved, and easier to visit. It is going to be a pleasant walk away from the crowds of Pompeii. The itinerary is going to be tailored to your needs and requests.
